On Tuesday November 29th, minimum wage workers took to San Francisco International Airport to protest the low minimum wage in an area with a skyrocketing, yet already sky high cost of living.  Compromised mostly of the foodservice industry, but also workers in retail, childcare, and airport employees, say that the current minimum wage ($13 an hour in San Francisco) isn’t enough to afford the basic necessities, even for those working full-time.  The protests at SFO were peaceful.  Along with the protests at SFO, there were also protests held in other major cities including Oakland, New York, Chicago, Detroit, and Los Angeles.
